Victim of sex trafficking crimes says the need for more safe houses exists in Regina

A 46-year-old Regina woman is speaking out about her experiences in the hopes she can help other sex-trafficking victims.

Beatrice Wallace says she was 14 when men put her on the street, and that then, and now, there was a need for more safe houses.

Police say it’s often difficult to lay charges against sex-traffickers because victims are often too scared to turn to them for help.

The national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls found that Saskatoon is part of two human-trafficking circles.
